 OFFSET 1,11 COMMENTS Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for every n = 640, 641, .... We have verified this for n up to 75000. The conjecture implies that there are infinitely many primes p with prime(p) + 2 and prime(prime(p)) + 2 both prime. LINKS Zhi-Wei Sun, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 EXAMPLE a(8) = 1 since 2*phi(3) + phi(5)/2 + 1 = 7, prime(7) + 2 = 17 + 2 = 19 and prime(prime(7)) + 2 = prime(17) + 2 = 61 are all prime. a(667) = 1 since 2*phi(193) + phi(667-193)/2 + 1 = 384 + 78 + 1 = 463, prime(463) + 2 = 3299 + 2 = 3301 and prime(prime(463)) + 2 = prime(3299) + 2 = 30559 are all prime.
